Meet Ms. Jennifer

I have over seven years of experience in the Early Childhood Education field.
About Me

My name is Jennifer Mickelson, and I love Early Childhood Education!

I have a B.S. in Educational Studies with 112 credits in Early Childhood Education. I am from Tillamook, OR and recently relocated back with my husband and son, after living in Corvallis for 9 years. While in Corvallis I taught and directed at an Early Learning Center. My experience ranges from birth through age 5.5 at the preschool level and up to age 12 with after school care. 


I am passionate about this field and believe that early childhood education is so important. My goal is to bring a high-quality preschool program to Tillamook where children can grow, learn and thrive in their environment.

My Hobbies

In my free time I love camping, traveling, hiking and playing with my son, Elijah! One of my favorite places is the beach and I think the Oregon Coast has some of the best. 

I love going on adventures with my husband and son. We love being outside.

I love learning and enjoy taking early childhood trainings throughout the year. There is always something new to learn in this field!

I believe it is important to create relationships with every child and I can't wait to help them learn. Your child will always feel welcome in class and I can't wait to meet them!
